Kurssin kuvaus

Find fraud and corruption before it finds you!  A practical course where you will learn proven techniques which you can use in your organization.

With Nigel Iyer and Veronica Morino

About the course:

This updated course is for anyone in organisations who wants to learn how to find concrete examples where their organisation is being defrauded or involved in something undesirable. The goal is to find indications and warning signs as early as possible and follow them through efficiently, instead of relying on whistle-blowers, or waiting for the story to break in the media.

The core of the training will focus on two highly successful and proven techniques which all participants can use in their organisations to discover fraud and corruption early, namely “following the money to find fraud fast” and “how to apply the “think like a thief” methodology to identify where fraud is most likely.  Participants will also learn how to effectively employ desktop investigation techniques in a structured manner to efficiently explore the red flags and indications which they have discovered. Finally, the course will address how to efficiently resolve and remedy instances of likely fraud and corruption with minimal disruption.

This training will be highly practical and held by Nigel Iyer and Veronica Morino from Hibis ( Both are experts in their field with a strong track record and many years of experience of detecting and resolving fraud and corruption early, Nigel and Veronica have also worked extensively in Finland and the surrounding region.  You, the participant,  will also be working with realistic scenarios, documents, data and examples of footprints.
